from texas. ms. johnson: i rise today to speak in support of h.r. 3547, a bill to the application of certain space launch liability provisions through 2014. first established by congress as part of the commercial space launch act amendments of 1988, the commercial space transportation risk sharing liability and insurance regime has been extended seven times. it expires on december 31 of this year. it's important for congress to act now so there is sufficient time for this legislation to make its way to the president's desk before the current authority expires. the liability and insurance regime that would be extended by this legislation is three-tiered. and in the first tier, license and commercial launch providers are required to purchase third-party liability insurance to compensate for possible losses from the third-party claims by uninvolved public. up to the maximum probable loss level determined by the federal aviation agency administration. as part of this licensing process or a maximum level of $500 million. in the second tier, the claims above those maximum probable losse

and johnson's fault. if you look at mike allman who is making a heroic effort to save the company. he's doing everything he can and i wish him the best of luck there, he's put a decent bit of his own money in the company as well, i believe a million dollars of his own money and he is he's clearly doing everything he can, and i fair it's too late. you look what we've seen in the last couple months. we've seen some marginal improvement, well, marginal improvement in october, great improvement in november look at the comp. a year ago the company was, company sales were in freefall and those comps, better year over year are still way below two years ago, so, we'll see what happens here, but i think it's too little, too late. stuart: charles, does this fit into one of the themes of the programs, which is there's a rush to on-line retailing and floor traffic in the brooks and mortar stores is just not there like it used to be? in if a kt-- in fact, it's declining. does this fit the pattern, at least one of the big names in retailing goes out in part because of on-line selling? >> well, i think it d

dermott on speculation friday? simple, it announced the old ceo steven johnson who has been running the company some say running the company into the ground for the last four years will be retiring later this month. going to be replaced by david dixon. and before that he ran the u.s. arm of technip a terrific energy construction firms that's one of the principal competitors. dixon has 23 years of offshore experience. that's right, in engineering construction for oil fields and i think he's the right guy for the job. i think he has the experience to turn the company around. mcdermott's management is being revamped, but that alone will not make for a turn around, creates the potential for one. what do i think is happening could encourage shareholders? first of all, and this is crucial in any stock story comeback. after all the company's missteps, the expectations for mcdermott have gotten so low that the stock seems to be impervious to bad news. what i regarded as a disappointing quarter. earnings coming in well below expectations. company's backlog decreasing an astounding 9% and serious execution issues
this on cable tv and a variety of other things. i'll finish by recounting words that lyndon johnson, a master legislator, said once. he grew up poor in the hill country in texas. and his family couldn't always take for granted that they were going to have enough to keep the roof over their head or keep food on the table. o this is the thought i'll leave you with. jobson once said any man not willing to compromise, well, that man never went to bed hungry. he said, you know, he said any man who is not willing to settle for half a loaf, well, that man never went to bed hungry. that's exactly right. the american people expect us to be problem solvers and practical solution providers, not happen right now. we're too intent on taking an all or nothing approach which leads to nothing. having said all of that, i'm pleased to be with you here. and senator, i'll turn it over o you. >> to all of you, if you have a question, stand up -- i don't know where the mics are. we have the mics. so let's begin. if you have a question, stand up, we'll go to you. no, ma'am elected officials might feel giving up the
they're coming off of. ron johnson set the bar so incredibly low that if you can't beat it, you're done. >> by selling something you beat last year's. what's more important than penney is michael weiss is the company's chairman and ceo at express. i'm sure some we deal with will criticize me on this. he's got a look for people entering in their 20s the workforce, he has the right looks. this is not teenage. this is another demo that's not spending. >> wow. there is a stock that's going to be down sharply this morning and it goes back to the same theme we've been talking about for three or four months, and that is that apparel is not selling as much as people buying mobile stuff. >> and maybe they go into the trunk. mr. jaffrey on squawk on monday blew the numbers out buts that is the lower to mid-rate jump. and they made an acquisition. i've fancied myself as a bit of a retail enthusiast. >> we didn't know that. that's shocking. you a retail enthusiast? >> you got a nice hair cut. how's that? >> thank you. >> you want to go fight in the schoolyard after this? >> what? i used to get beat
johnson when he described intelligence, he developed the memory of when he was milking a cow on the farm down at the river as a young man, and he said he would get the bucket filled with pure milk and then the cat would relieve itself in the milk. and president johnson said the relief -- and he met relief in the bad way -- that was intelligence. [laughter] so you can imagine how that hurt our feelings. [laughter] but there is another metaphor that i often hear and that is the famous woody allen comment that we in the intelligence community like to provide options to policymakers, and so we look out at the world and say, we are at a crossroads. one path leads to death and destruction, and the other path leads to total annihilation. [laughter] and we hope you policymakers would be able to the wisdom to choose the right course. but, in fact, in my experience and the spirits i think we're going to relate today on the balkans is that intelligence is, when it works well, a collaborative enterprise. fast capabilities to bring to the fight but also with clear limitations to be understood by lead
